Tonight the Bearcats finally won an overtime game! We beat the College of Charleston 3-2 in double overtime in the opening game of the College of Charleston tournament. It was a full team effort with Jaz scoring the game winner in the 102nd minute with the assist coming from Grause. We went down in the first half and fought back to tie the game and go ahead one, only to have Charleston score with 10 minutes left. We never let that stop us and dominated the overtime periods, not allowing Charleston to have a shot on goal. Hebs did such a great job tonight holding off players and laying balls back into our midfield so it was no surprise when we cleared a ball from the back that Hebs held off her defenders and played a ball to Grause who was making a great slashing run. Grause's original shot was deflected by the keeper right to an oncoming Jaz who took one touch and shot the ball. GOAL! We all went nuts! We had a dog pile on the field and Jaz lead us off to cool down with the Cincinnati O-cheer! It was great to finally win in overtime after three tries!
We finished our night off with some dinner from Sticky Fingers BBQ and some partner ice baths! Poor Mollie had to keep time for EK and I and listen to us complain about the cold water! Tomorrow we have a light recovery practice after breakfast before heading to lunch in downtown Charleston. We are all really excited to walk around downtown Charleston but we were promised to make it back in time for the UC-Tennessee football game at 3:30!! Hopefully the football team can bring home a big win from a strong SEC school! We finish up our Charleston trip with a game at noon on Sunday versus Coastal Carolina. Were looking for another win to give us some momentum before we head into Big East play next week!
